Chile, Earthquake, nine days later


-->

Nine days after an 8.8-magnitude
earthquake killed hundreds of people in south-central Chile, relief
efforts were beginning to reach those in need, rescue missions became
recovery missions, and rebuilding is already under way. In the days
since the February 27th quake, nearly 150 aftershocks have been
recorded, including thirteen above magnitude 6.0. The government has
been criticized by Chileans, who say the response was slow and
inefficient. One recent government action was to grant a short amnesty
to looters before sending troops out in search of stolen goods. Nearly
$2 million worth of looted items were returned, often dumped on
roadsides, by Sunday. Collected here are photographs from the past week
in quake-affected Chile.
